Ayankoko is building progressive experimental ambient noise soundscapes forms in his mastery-led improvisations, creating beautiful textures from clicks, cuts, digital noises and micro sounds; evanescent high frecuencies feedbacks, broken beats are moved quietly like a river but always bring the listener to some interesting view of mind.
Smelly psychedelism, hypnotic mess, drones, harsh noise, unreal soundfields, repetitive sickness, toys, dreams, high tones, or fearing memories, shugendo: an inner content musical’s journey that synthetizes the continuous quietness and tensions of human spirit, it’s the beautiful thing about.
“Consider everything as an experiment.” (John Cage)
